A German doctor has been training a handful of children for 20 years to develop su­per­pow­ers such as pre­cog­ni­tion and fire starting. They are the Nazis’ secret weapon, swaying the progress of the War. To stop the Germans from crossing the English Channel, the British recruit a handful of warlocks to make a devil’s bargain with ancient evil beings.

Told from the viewpoint of one of the German su­per­be­ings and two of the British agents, we see the terrible costs to each of them, as they lose their honor and draw close to insanity.
